Evo Morales plane hijack: South America stands against USA

Eurasia News

An emergency UNASUR meeting has demanded the governments of France, Portugal, Italy and Spain apologize for forcibly halting President Morales’s plane in Austria due to suspicions Edward Snowden might have been aboard.

The Cochabamba Declaration issued at the summit also denounced “the flagrant violation of international treaties.”

Tensions flared at the UNASUR summit in Bolivia, with the country’s president Evo Morales saying that his “hand would not shake” if and when he “closes the US Embassy,” following the forced stop of presidential plane in Austria.

Ahead of the summit, the Bolivian President has expressed appreciation for the support he has received so far from Latin American countries.
